5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I ended up here due to a flight cancellation. The property is new modern and clean. The staff is really helpful (typical of midwesterners) and the food was awesome. The whole place reminded me of a boutique hotel I stayed at a couple of years ago in San Diego. Very nice.

My husband and I were recently in Iowa on business and drove by the Kirkwood while driving to an appointment. We decided to stay one night and are very happy we made the choice. The rooms are spacious, modern, with wonderful windows. The lobby and small bar area are very inviting and relaxing to have a cocktail. We had dinner... More

Have been to a couple of conferences here. Staff has been outstanding. It is a training hotel and everyone is on good behavior and ready to please guests. Food beautifully presented, delicious and some different types of offerings. Lovely surroundings, easy to find. Great accommodations. It is a do-again place. Jean - Davenport, IA

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with the rooms at this hotel. The lighting was far more than in most hotels; the heating/air conditioning system was much superior as well. No cold air blowing on you from the window unit, etc. And just an elegant setting with full ceiling to floor windows. The bath had a full walk-in shower... More

We were in this hotel for one night, but we'll absolutely return when we're in the area. Gorgeous hotel, terrific staff, great restaurant. At check-in the staff went out of their way to find us the perfect room. And it was! A corner room with wonderful views, a great bathroom, large towels. I can recommend this hotel to everyone who...

I can't say enough about the Hotel at Kirkwood Center. We travelled to Cedar Rapids from the QCA for a horse show at the Kirkwood Equestrian Center, and I always dread staying at hotels in Cedar Rapids. I booked two rooms at the Hotel for a special pre-paid rate. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality... More

We recently traveled to Cedar Rapids to attend a family gathering. We booked this hotel because it was newer and had decent reviews. The rooms are quite nice, clean and roomy with very comfortable beds. After checking in we found out most of the staff were students at the college of hospitality. Every student we encountered was great. Really friendly... More

Just stayed one night, but would love to stay again. Rooms were beautiful, beds and bedding luxury quality. Ate at the restaurant in the morning, and everything was delicious and fresh, including fresh pastries that were brought out before the meal. Awesome friendly, helpful staff too.

I stayed here for a work trip and didn't know anything about the hotel prior to arrival. It operates alongside the adjacent college of hospitality, which meant that most of the people who were helping you were student getting graded on their performance. It works and everyone we encountered was delightful. The rooms were very nice and had a couch... More
